Yes. You can become a pediatrician with any major. Admissions committees care more about your GPA than your major. Here's a great Princeton Review article on the subject:

My classmates ranged from biology and chemistry to dance majors.

TONYA recommends the following next steps:

  • Find the classes that give you the most joy and major in that area.
  • Make sure you take all the medical school prerequisites by the middle of junior year of college.
